My bedroom faces the back garden and directly in front of my bedroom is the up stairs neighbours back garden (cottage flat), they only have a bit of fence left seperating their garden with the people behind us as it has all tore down.
For the past week the people in the garden backing on to the neighbours have been building or something, in all honesty I don't know WTF they are doing, as I am typing this they have just tore down a shed, there's kids jumping on bits of it and have just started up an electrical saw or something, as you can imagine, it's quite loud...
It's 9pm just now, they have been at it all times day and night for days.
I could live with the noise but once it gets dark they have fucking flood lights on, the light is enough to light up my entire bedroom and they have had them on every night once it gets dark, sometimes until 3am.
Last night they attatched one of these stupid lights high up on a tree and when they went home at stupid AM they left it on. It went off during the day and now it's back on.
WTF. I am not being unreasonable, am I? Surely this isn't normal behaviour? I feel like I am going fecking mad.
If they're a bit scary then definitely send round the council lackeys!
Environmental health will want to be there as it's happening, they came round to ours and stayed for 20 minutes because, of course, the minute they get there the issue stops.
I'd take pictures and maybe take a note of times that it is coming on. I'm sure that noise wise theres a curfew with regards to how many decibels they can reach etc so if it's noisy past 8 or 9pm call tehm on it.
The storm that blew over my neighbours wendy house that was anchored to the ground in concrete? Jeezo. Whatever they're building they must be very desperate. Or part inuit to put up with the freezing cold winds!
You've got my sympathy with the floodlights - our neighbours did the building frenzy last year and must have installed half the garden lighting aisle from B+Q which all shine into our back windows. They're forever forgetting to turn them off on a night and thus the kids' room, and going to the loo in the bathroom in the middle of the night is like the centre circle of Old Trafford and it's shit.
Very little we can do really - we rock the boat and they'll forget to switch the lights off every night as well. Don't really want a neighbour dispute to have to declare if/when we ever decide to sell the house.
